Muddying the Water

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow said she had a “strange scoop” to share with audiences Thursday night after receiving what she believes is a meticulously forged document sent over her tip line with the intention to discredit her.


The MSNBC host pointed to a recent report that led CNN to retract a story on Russia and led three top staffers who worked on the story to resign, as well as Vice News’ retraction of two Trump-related stories just last week.


“We believe now that the real story we have stumbled upon here is that somebody out there is shopping carefully forged documents to try to discredit news agencies reporting on the Russian attack on our election, and specifically on the possibility that the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russians in mounting that attack,” she said.

No doubt. Not a new tactic. Speak to Dan Rather about the Killian documents.

I suspect Roger Stone and other Trump surrogates will be doing everything they can to discredit any bad press Trump gets.  I imagine they'll be going after Robert Mueller and his team as well.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.


Glenn Greenwald responds to Maddow's report.
